The Cause Of The Egg Rejecting The Sperm?
I am 26 years old and have been married for 1.5 years but have not been blessed with children. I have tested HSG, transvaginal ultrasound, and sperm with all normal results. My promilary doctor has done ovulation induction up to 3 times, but still failed. Then I remembered that my friend had said that one of the reasons for the difficulty of pregnancy was that the ovum refused sperm because it thought that sperm was a virus / bacteria. But when I asked my doctor promil, he said based on the latest research there is no such thing as ovum rejects sperm. Is it true that the ovum rejects the sperm that is not there?
Hello Nurul, thank you for your question
Having children is one of the goals of marriage. Generally, 90 percent of pregnancies occur in the first year of marriage that are carried out routinely without contraception. This possibility increases to 95 percent in the second year of marriage.
If at this time you and your partner have not been blessed with children, do not be discouraged and give up. Consult directly to a gynecologist. After performing a series of special examinations, such as transvaginal ultrasound, HSG imaging, hormone and ovulation tests, and sperm analysis for your partner, the doctor will determine the right pregnancy program according to the condition of your reproductive organs and your partner. If no abnormalities are found from these examinations, in order to get pregnant quickly, it is better if you and your partner:
routinely have sexual intercourse at least 3 times a week (without contraception) determine your fertile period and ovulation day, try to have sexual intercourse on that date adopt a healthy and balanced lifestyle between physical activity and diet, also avoid excessive stress stop various bad habits, such as smoking or drinking alcohol consumption of folic acid supplements and / or drugs prescribed by your doctor Regarding your question about egg cells that reject sperm cells, you probably mean ASA (antisperm antibody). ASA is a condition when the immune system mistakes sperm cells for foreign microorganisms that are harmful to the body. ASA can be found on the body of both men and women. Until now, the cause of the formation of ASA is still not clear. In the condition of a man or woman who has ASA, in order for pregnancy to occur, it can be assisted by in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Discuss this problem with a gynecologist who usually handles you. If you are in doubt about the doctor's explanation, there is nothing wrong with asking another obstetrician for consideration as a second opinion.
